board with recommendation. >> supervisor kim: supervisor avalos? >> thank you chair kim. i do appreciate the applicant put himself forward to serve on the committee. although i feel there is expertise in doing community work, and working with certainly around the leand avenue area, that is a significant public service. i think someone representing a low income seat, i look for keywords, concerned with demographic changes, poverty. i just wasn't hearing that. i think it is important if we are going to be having a seat looking at overseeing how we do development; how different agencies work together; that we have a clear lens perspective that is real concerns about low income people at heart. i did not hear that coming. not to say that the person does not have qualifications in other ways. for this seat, i want to make sure we are able to maintain that perspective. it should be clear to me in making a decision to that appointment. i would not support the motion. >> supervisor kim: i actually feel very torn about this. i represent a portion of market octavia. i do think tha

(gavel). we have a motion to move the item forward to the full board. it won't be heard until the first tuesday in december; i urge you to reach out to the board of supervisors as well. it will be helpful to sit down with the city attorney about any other kind of potential conflicts that may arise and you can think about this in advance. we have a motion that we can do that without opposition.
